Life often presents difficult obstacles that can stand between who you are and who you want to be. Some obstacles may be unhealthy patterns in your relationships, overwhelming sadness or worry, not feeling good enough, or a loss of direction or purpose in your life.

When you feel stuck or overwhelmed, you don't want to settle for generic solutions. I provide therapy that addresses your unique struggles so that you can move toward greater confidence and deeper connection. Maybe you're suffering from an unbearable loss or a painful past experience. Perhaps you feel disconnected and lonely. Maybe you feel lost at work because the pressure is too immense. Anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, relationship issues... whatever the label may be, this isn't how you imagined your life. You feel better for a moment, but it doesn't last. It's so frustrating. You don't have to keep struggling like this.

Through telehealth-, home-, and school-based services, I meet my clients where they are. Usually families come to me because they feel stuck. Their child has difficult emotions, acts out, and cannot seem to listen. Teachers and parents struggle to feel effective and worry about the child’s future. Everything feels complicated and out of control.

Finding the right therapist can be challenging, so I recommend that you call at least three people and talk on the phone to see if you have a good sense of a connection. Noticing how someone listens to you, even in this initial, small way, can save you time and effort in setting up consultations. The art of listening well is the beginning of what can be a life giving experience, so I encourage you to see what treatment can do for you. All my best to you, Leslie Bartolf

Better is possible. Crises, life transitions, and losses can bring new triggers to old traumas. You may find yourself struggling with feelings that are debilitating, even immobilizing. Anxiety, sadness, and overwhelm can leave you feeling unable cope in healthy, appropriate ways. But it can get better, and you don't have to go at it alone. Therapy is an invitation to attend to your feelings and thoughts. In the deep reflection that therapy allows, you can become aware of the choices hidden behind the pain and confusion. You can gain reconnection to your core, essential self. You can move towards recovery and wholeness.

Thank you for coming to my page. I am a seasoned therapist--easy to talk to, easy to trust. In the business for a long time. So many people have confided in me over the years, things that made them feel bad or sad, things they could not say to anyone else, things that made them feel embarrassed, difficulties that are hard to talk about. Therapy is about getting free from these things, putting them into perspective and perhaps into the past where they belong. It makes so much difference to have an easy going, skilled listener.

As a therapist I have witnessed healing and its splendor in the darkest of circumstances and am honored when individuals choose to embark on this journey with me. I know the decision to enter therapy is not always easy. Therapy is not easy. But therapy heals. When you enter therapy you put forth a willingness to acknowledge painful emotions and circumstances and a readiness to explore life events that are often uncomfortable, sometimes even paralyzing. But the insight and meaning you will gain from therapy will lead to transformation, comfort and growth.

Dr. Thomas believes that the goals of therapy are: symptom removal (initially), alleviation of pain, facilitation of personal growth, basic character change, and to remove obstacles blocking individuals’ paths. She subscribes to German psychoanalyst, Karen Horney’s view that the human being has an inbuilt propensity toward self-realization. If obstacles are removed, the individual will develop into a mature, fully realized adult, just as an acorn will develop into an oak tree. So, a therapist’s job is identifying and removing the obstacles. Everyone has a yearning for self-realization.

Our stories and identity are formed within relationships. With this in mind, I pay particular attention to your relationships (past and present), and the ways that these relationships have influenced how you view yourself, others and the world. Often times, our pain happens within relationships, and it takes a relational space to also experience healing.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in South, Pasadena, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
